Olympian Cheryl Bernard to speak at RDC Scholarship Breakfast

Red Deer College is set to bring one of the most recognizable curlers in Canada to town this spring.

Earlier in December, the college announced that Olympic curler Cheryl Bernard will speak at the 16th annual RDC Kings and Queens Athletics Scholarship Breakfast on April 10.

Bernard won silver in the 2010 Olympics and was also an alternate for Rachel Homan at the 2018 Olympics. In 2016, she was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame for her curling accomplishments.

According to a press release, Bernard’s keynote on April 10, You Hold the Pen, will encourage audiences to write the story of their own lives, with intention.

Along with table seating for the event, community members will also be able to purchase bleacher seating for the keynote address, which does not include breakfast.
